FYI, I have just installed Windows Server 2019 Standard (Desktop Experience) using the latest (WS2016) HP AMD chipset & VGA driver. Everything is recognised in Device Manager and stable.
I need to update the firmware on a HP Proliant Microserver Remote Access Card installed in my N40L.
Can someone please explain what I need to do to create a boot device that will update the firmware on the Remote Access Card?
after checking my ILo4, version2.61 on my Gen8 hp microservet, i saw an exclamation mark at cpld-pal0. It is now version 0x06.
i have read that there is an version 0x32.
anybody who has this version, and can provide me with a download link?
Attached my firmware configuration. Any suggestions for any updating? Think most is up to date?
Sorry can’t upload photo, error 200.
Newbie here, so please be gentle with me!
I have an 18 month old Gen8 server bought new but now out of warranty, so limited access to HPE updates. My Gen8 has 8Gb memory, Recently added Xeon 1220v2, standard disk controller (122i ) and 4 off 3.5” drives giving 6Tb of storage under storage spaces. OS on SATA HDD sitting in ODD space as recommended on here. I was running Win10 Pro, but after upgrading processor and trying to update drivers with Intelligent Provisioning, I fell foul of the expired warranty. I also lost my printer driver for HP laser jet and my sound drivers (usb connected sound card).
To cut a long and painful journey a bit shorter, I am re-installing Win10 Pro from DVD, with licence key under IP. My question as someone without warranty, but with a copy of the SPP download (ISO?), how do I install the various drivers needed from the SPP and do I need to update the firmware for the Xeon processor, if so how? I read on here that the original 2014 J06 firmware does not have a thermal solution for Xeon processor and ILO shows high temps for some components.
I am reasonable knowledgeable in Windows of old and have Rufus to create bootable usb sticks, but unsure how to get from SPP ISO image as downloaded (871795_001_spp-2017.04.0-SPP2017040.2017_0420.14).
Any help from experienced gurus much appreciated!
I hope this topic fits here just right.
So a few days ago, I moved my Microserver Gen8 to a friend's place and resetted it.
When we set it up with new disks, the raid-creation in OpenMediaVault (Debian 9.6) failed.
`smartctl` tests passed just fine though and vendor-tools also didn't report any drive errors.
- I start the Raid creation via `mdadm` and after a while (random blocks and times), it fails and the second disk seems to fail (e.g. sda and sdb are creating a raid, then sdb gets "kicked out" and reread as e.g. sdd, sometimes even with only a few GB of space instead of 3TB).
I tried attaching the second disk on ata2 and ata3, but it keeps failing. The one on ata1 works just fine though.
I tried different disks and vendors, but get the same results.
There are some errors in `dmesg`, but I don't know what they mean. I pasted them here: https://pastebin.com/raw/XASQJ6cy
What I did here: I stopped the raid to re-create it, but then didn't do anything for a while and the error still came up.
Can someone help me with this? (As a wild guess, I'd say that somethings wrong with the SATA connections at least on ata2 and ata3).
Thanks in advance
